Great River Physical Therapy, a service of Great River Medical Center in Wapello, Iowa, will begin offering occupational therapy services Tuesday, Jan. 3.

Appointments with occupational therapist Jill Nealey will be available from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. A physician’s referral is required.

Great River Physical Therapy opened in July 2009, and it is staffed by doctor of physical therapy Bill Myers. Great River Physical Therapy and Great River Clinic, a family medical clinic, are in one convenient location – 220 Mulberry St., Wapello. The telephone number is 319-768-4090.
